  1. Well, what a difference from Saturday. Chalk and Cheese. If Sat was 1* then tonight was 10*. Changes forced on Brad due to injury and non availability. Brad played a great game sitting behind everyone as a sweeper. Excellent. Great attitude by the Players. It's always if only, but if only we had picked up a few more points we would be clear 6th. Is there still time to push on........yes. If the spirit shown tonight can continue.
  2. Jordan was there pre match I thought I heard that Jordan left the ground as his partner was close to having their baby. Sure someone can confirm any official news. "Most" supporters appear to have a very similar opinion on who would be our best selection and the preferred formation, capitalising on certain players skills. We all think we are a Manager - most supporters at all levels do !!!
  3. Cannot disagree with last couple of posts. Who are your best eleven What formation would you play with the squad we now have. Why o why to we just punt it down the middle. What is wrong with playing wide round the back of opposition defence. Don't start on about Corey - he has gone. This squad needs to stand up and fight.
  4. Agree with above comments. To say it was poor is giving too much credit. It was dire, inept, disjointed with no "team play" One shot in each half - their keeper had a day off. I have asked this before, so I will ask again. Why do we persist with long high balls down the centre of the pitch hitting the opositions tall strong centre backs who just head everything away. Why not use wide players who get round the back of defenders as other teams do yo us. Very frustrating. My m o m was Claudio. Never missed a tackle or header all game. So much stronger than Town forwards. BIG effort needed on Monday at Kingstonian to turn this around.
  5. He actually played for them last week in the 0-1 loss at home to Needham. Think we may do better keeping the ball on the ground !!
  6. Could do with up front on Saturday ⚽ What a Player he was and a real nice Guy RIP Tommy
  7. Steph Is the answer Hoddesdon ? FA Cup
  8. Not sure what the possession count was but we appeared to be on top in the first half BUT as usual, gave away a stupid goal from poor mistake at the back. O if only we could defend these silly goals. Still had the problem of not being able to convert the chances. In my opinion.....Harry star of half, but we go in 0-1. Much of the same 2nd half. Merstham lively, fast going forward and very direct. Late change with Tom, Mickey and Bobby on. Much improved Then 80 mins another soft goal. Still pressure from Town. Bobby goal, Pushing forward, Rikky goal, pushing forward. 2-2. For me the interesting point will be what Brad does with selection next Sat. If change of player and shape of team had changed at half time, Town may well of won this one. Onwards and upwards.
  9. Scott Shulton has an impressive CV . Good addition. Ryan - great to have him back around the place. A few weeks before he is fit to play. Good stuff.
  10. Beards, Agree, but the players have to start thinking about how each other play and what they do. Yesterday Harry must of won 25 or more headers and flick-ons, but not a single player anticipated his efforts and waited until the header was won before moving.....far too late and ball cleared. Players need to learn and anticipate more, they should know by now and move with the thought that Harry WILL win the header. So frustrating.
  11. Merstham, Not Burgess Hill. Merstham will be very tough, they are scoring lots of goals ( incl 5 against Tonbridge last week ) Billericay will be the "usual" tough encounter.
  12. Agree with comments above. Hope Brad and Coaches read them, although fairly obvious !! Lack of width, game very central and no outlet when defence had the ball. Having said that the team defended well and one way or another it was good to win a game where we did not play that well. Dulwich are on a poor run, but all teams ( including them ) lift there game at the QEII. I suggest this will be the toughest home game so far. One last comment ( not a moan ) can the midfield play low through balls to Dernell for him to latch onto and score ( as Hendon game ) rather than hit high balls giving him ( and others ) no chance against tall strong centre backs. Dulwich have two good big strong lads at the back. We need to play it on the deck and / or get round the full backs. Tactics sorted .....ha ha.
  13. Not the best game or performance BUT a win is a win is 3 points. Was never going to be a repeat of Saturday, as some seemed to expect. Football just ain't like that.
  14. Same team selection would be good to keep the momentum going, although I am sure the guys who were on the bench will be telling Brad why they should be in the first 11. Confidence should be high, need to keep run going now it's started.
